Invista, one of the world's largest integrated producers of polymers and fibers teams with Gokak Textiles Ltd and RSWM Limited to develop spun yarns that can be qualified for developing Coolmax fabric in India.

Coolmax fabric is a unique performance fabric that moves moisture away from the body whilst enhances fabric drying rate, thus keeping the wearer feeling cool and dry. Invista launched Coolmax fabric brand in India earlier this year realizing that temperature regulation and sweat management in clothing is one of the growing demands in the country due to the tropical climate.

Now the association with Gokak  & RSWM can develop yarns with various blends e.g., cotton & Coolmax fibers, polyester & Coolmax fibers, 100% Coolmax fibers, in various blend ratios and in various counts.

Andrew Evans, Managing Director, South Asia said “We believe that with Coolmax fabric we can add another dimension of cool-comfort clothing for the Indian consumer. We have got an encouraging response from the Indian apparel industry and are happy to announce that we will be working closely with Gokak Textiles Ltd and Rajasthan Spinning & Weaving Mills.”

H.S. Bhaskar, Executive Director & CEO, Gokak Textiles commented, “The consumer is becoming much more aware and demands better quality products suited to their specific needs. We will be working closely with Invista so that we can provide them premium fabric for their garment range. Coolmax fiber will provide more comfort and is value for money given that it is a high performance fabric and is suited to the Indian weather conditions.”

Mr. J C Laddha, Executive Director & CEO of RSWM limited, commented that “Partnership on merits between two business entities is the prerequisite for the success of value chain. The association of RSWM Limited with Invista opens up a new possibility in functional textile. Invista is a leader in the industry and has a good team to strengthen the brand value of Coolmax fabric. Similarly, RSWM limited is synonymous with innovation and functionality as a textile manufacturer. We at RSWM provide tailor-made solutions for customer specific requirements. RSWM develops & produces special yarns with inherent functional properties that remain permanent throughout the lifetime of ultimate products such as sportswear, leisurewear, T-shirts, shirts, trousers, denim, intimate apparel, socks etc. I believe this association will go a long way and mutually benefit both the organizations.”

Applications of Coolmax fabric is not limited to Sportswear and activewear. It is used in a variety of applications ranging from Ready-to-wear e.g., denims, shirts, trousers, T-shirts to Intimate apparel e.g., undergarments, vests etc., to Socks and various other garment types. The specialty fibers for Coolmax fabric can also be blended with cotton, polyester and wool.

Coolmax fabric delivers performance and comfort to the wearer through the use of polyester fibers with special micro channel cross sections that transfer sweat from the body to the outside very effectively.
